Horse never picks up wrong lead?
Ok, we are baffled. I'm sure some of you may have a read my other threads regarding this horse, but he is a special case. We have been working on his canter, and actually cantering, not galloping off into the wild blue yonder. The thing is, he has NEVER picked up the wrong lead, and does flying lead changes without being asked when doing figure eights. He is unbalanced at the canter, although it is improving, and I know for a fact that he has not been previously trained to do flying lead changes. Anyone encountered this odd situation before?! And it scared the bejesus out of me the first time he did it, because he did it before I even had a chance to ask. He doesn't stumble or falter, just this perfect little lead change, never misses a single footfall. Is this unusual, or is it just something we have not yet had experience with?
